August, September dates added for free Fall River mobile market

More events are taking place for those in Fall River struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mobile Food Markets continue to take place in the parking lot of the Fall River YMCA at 199 North Main Street.

The Y, in partner with the Greater Boston Food Bank, will be offering the temporary market in a no contact drive-thru pick-up where everyone must practice social distancing by keeping 6 feet of separation between individuals.

Food items will be pre-packaged and CDC guidelines will be followed during the market.

Vehicle trunks must be accessible and have room to place 2 grocery bags.

YMCA Southcoast-Fall River Executive Director Stephanie Mancini stated that the markets will be a “no registration” event. Mancini also stated that they are in desperate need of reuseable bags if anyone has any to spare.

Since we first aired this story, Mancini has secured more dates. The market will take place this Thursday, August 20th at 9:30 a.m. Additional markets are scheduled to take place on Thursday September 3rd and Thursday September 17th at the same time and location.

Additional dates will be added as needed.

We. Are. Grateful. 💙💜 The Greater Boston Food Bank Thank you to our amazing crew for boxing and distributing 15,000lbs…
